The season of Lent is usually a solemn time of reflection for many churches.

Pastor Joy Zepp said she has seen the duo perform at the Brethren Church's national...

andrear@herald-mail.com WILLIAMSPORT - When the Rev. Franke Zollman looks at the terra cotta oil lamp from Persia, circa 600 B.C., he imagines such a lamp lighting the home of the biblical prophet Daniel. He envisions biblical kings David and Solomon when he holds the nearly 3,000-year-old clay jug from Jordan. The pastor at Williamsport Seventh Day Adventist Church considers the ancient oil lamps and hundreds of other artifacts that he's both purchased from antiquities dealers and excavated during archaeological digs in the Middle East as proof that the stories about the people in the Bible are true.

Judaism, Christianity and Islam all trace their origins to Abraham. All three religions follow Abraham's belief in one god and trace their roots to one of Abraham's sons. The holy books of all three religions - the Quran of the Muslims, the Torah of the Jews and the Bible of the Christians - include the stories about Abraham's family found in the book of Genesis in the Bible. Jews trace their ancestry through Isaac, Abraham's younger son by his wife, Sarah. Since Christianity is an offshoot of Judaism, Christians read and study the Jews' holy books (known as the Old Testament in the Bible)

I've been wronged by Senator Byrd To the editor: Your Dec. 13 edition gave prominence to Senator Byrd's local speech in which he said, in part: "We can boycott filthy books, filthy music and videos and the merchants that stock them on their shelves. " Please give equal prominence to my remarks as follows: Senator Byrd's staff people apparently keep him oblivious to the true feelings of his constituents, such as my letters to his office, for obvious reasons surrounding their need for a part of the power halo worn by the senator.

The national election last fall brought renewed focus on religion, moral values, faith and the foundations of those beliefs. Numerous pundits agreed that the vote of evangelical Christians was decisive in the outcome sending President Bush back to the White House. Some see this emphasis on moral values as encouraging - others see it as dangerous. Believing the Bible is viewed as anti-intellectual by some and even dangerous to democracy. Yet President Theodore Roosevelt said this: "Every thinking man, when he thinks, realizes that the teachings of the Bible are so interwoven and entwined with our whole civic and social life that it would be literally impossible for us to figure ourselves what that life would be if these standards were removed.

Book review Many people know the story of Salome, a girl in the Bible whose sensual dance for her stepfather, Antipas, led to the death of John the Baptist, the cousin of Jesus. According to the Bible story, after Salome danced, her stepfather told her she could have anything she wanted. Salome's mother urged her to ask for John's head on a plate. She did ask for John's head. Antipas did give it to her, and her story made history. End of story? Not according to author Beatrice Gormley, who retells the tale narrated by Salome herself.

I don't understand Christian-Zionists To the editor: Christians I understand. Zionists I understand. Christian-Zionists I don't understand. Some say that modern Israel is entitled to the Holy Land because the God of the Bible promised it in perpetuity to Abraham and his descendants. That is almost right. God did promise Eretz Canaan to ancient Israel, but the promise was a conditional one. Ancient Israel was entitled to the land only so long as certain conditions were met. What Christian-Zionists do not appear to understand is that ancient Israel failed to satisfy the required conditions.
